Remember the feel of that weird spongy fabric those spring coats were made of? It was probably polyester (wasn't everything made of polyester back then?), but it was just an odd texture. I tried to find a photo of the exact kind of coat I'm talking about, but this was the closest I could find online. If I could find my photo album from my childhood, there is a lovely black and white snapshot of me, sporting an Easter Bonnet with a shorter brim than pictured, wearing a pink (I do remember the color) spring coat, white eyelet ankle socks and patent leather Mary Janes. However, as was the case with most of my early photographs, I appeared to have only 1 leg. I assure you that to this day, I continue to have 2 legs! Lol! I always stood with 1 leg up and because of the length of my dress, I always appeared to be missing a leg. It drove my Dad crazy! Lol!
I still have eggs to color and this year I am again going to attempt an Italian Easter Bread. Wish me luck! My Grandmother used to make them every year for Easter. I made one when my kids were little and it was a big hit. I saw the recipe over at Cinnamon Spice And Everything Nice and will be using it since I've lost track of my Grandmother's recipe. I'm also cooking Easter dinner. I really haven't nailed down the menu, other than I know we are having a spiral ham. I'll let you know how the Italian Easter Bread turned out.
I hope everyone has a
